The Ideal Founder
A zealot with an almost annoying passion for their business and
who could talk about their startup up every day, all day, easily.
They are good at selling. They believe living frugally is spiritual
and necessary. Understanding highly technical ideas as well as
the bigger picture is something they are good at. They are not
usually analytical. They don’t mind that each day is continually
different, despite the chaotic nature of such. They know that
money matters, but don’t spend too much time worrying about
their personal bank account – that doesn’t help sell the product.
Blind faith is often used to describe them. So is naivetéy.
